    Debe referirse a "a ver" pero quizás lo escribieron mal. En inglés creo que es como "Let's see" pero no estoy seguro.

    It is an expresion that has no sense by it self , it is used to enpahsize somethig taht you are gonna say. For example, if somebody ask you to do his job, you would say in Spanish: "aver ... es tu trabajo no el mio". Another example, if somebody try to teach you esperanto, you would say: Aver, dije que queria aprender español , no esperanto. There are some other ways to use it . Why dont we talk bye skype? my ID: surco2020 .

    Probablemente lo escribirían mal, podría tratarse de "A ver" o de "haber", las dos tienen significados diferentes, la primera se usa para en frases cuando tratas de aclarar algo, por ejemplo: "A ver, necesitamos algo" o "A ver,esto no es así" , por otro lado, "Haber" se refiere a la existencia de algo,por ejemplo: "Tiene que haber una solución", espero serte de ayuda ;)


    It means something like 'Let's see' or 'Let me take a look' or even 'Give it here'. For instance, someone has a photo and you might say 'A ver'; that is, 'Let me have a look at it.' It could even mean 'Let me see...' in the sense of 'I am thinking about this...'


    "A ver" como han dicho viene del verbo ver (see, watch)
    Haber (have)

    the word " ver" >> its a verb means (watch or see)
    but the phrase " a ver " means >>> ( lets see or we'll see )
